I dont think the Premium had anything to do with Del Webb. If you look at lot premiums, they are dictated by the views they afford. We had looked elsewhere in Denver area, and the Anthem prices are in line with others. But, once you add lot premium, extras, etc., the prices may seem to be of a premium nature.

I think the term "premium" is misleading because of the lot premiums. I, and others I am aware of, bought in this development because it was a Del Webb community / lifestyle. I am from out of state and went onto the Del Webb web page and searched for Del Webb communities in states that interested me. I settled on CO. Years before retirement, I knew I wanted to move to a Del Webb. To take away the Del Webb exposure from this community is huge as far as the future of this community and resales.

Perhaps premium was a bad word to use.

All developments that I have been in charge a lot premium based on the location and size of the lot.

What I meant to say was do you think the price you paid for your home was higher because it was in a Del Webb community.

For example, pretend it was a Pulte active adult community and not a Del Webb community. Would the total amount you paid for your house been the same?

If this changes your opinion you can go back and change your vote.

I think we paid a premium for the Del Webb name. Unfortunately, Del Webb has lost some of it's prestige since Pulte bought it, mainly due to the poor workmanship of their construction and by trying to cut corners.

Yes, we paid for the Del Webb name. Look at the little plaque on your front stoop. But, as has been said, "I thought I bought a Del Webb home, but all I got was a Pulte home." Our site has been under development and/or consideration since 1991, or so. Since they didn't start building until about 2006, someone has paid a lot while sitting on the empty land. The Broomfield name comes with a cost which has been passed on to us. Broomfield is a very up and coming area, as evidenced by the McWHinney, and other area projects. But, if you have followed the McWhinney project, completion is estimated to be in the 2040's. So, good luck on seeing that finished.
